Portugal Food Tour

Many people don’t want you to know that Portugal is one of the most underrated, inexpensive destinations in Europe nowadays. Thanks to its castles and cobblestoned village streets and beautiful coastline, it’s no wonder that the country has been dazzling and inspiring visitors for a long time now. But one of its most appealing attractions is the variety and deliciousness of Portuguese food. From freshly baked breads to quality wines, a Portugal food tour can really make you feel in love with the place.

Thanks to Portugal’s fertile landscape and easy access to the sea, you can guarantee that the food is fresh, and in the case of fruits and veggies, locally grown. Lisbon might be the country’s most popular culinary destination, thanks to its variety of tapas, the seaside kiosks, and its many wine bars. Check out the downtown core’s covered market, where the seafood selection includes monkfish, eel, and more. Of course, while in Lisbon you must sample the custard tarts! You can even participate in a cooking class, where you’ll prepare a starter dish, a fish dish, a meat dish, and of course, dessert. Pair the whole experience with some local white wines, and you’ve got yourself a fun-filled evening.

One surprising place to take a Portugal food tour is in Porto, also known as Oporto. Porto is particularly famous for its Douro wines – Port wines and Douro table wines. The town’s main specialty is tripas à modo do Porto – a tripe made with dried beans, veggies, pigs’ trotters, rice, and more. You can also try francesinhas here, which is bread topped with steak, sausage, cheese, and a beer sauce. The Spanish like their hearty meals! It’s possible to even combine a food tour with a bicycle tour, where an experienced guide will point out landmarks along the way, like famous wine cellars, in between luxuriating in gastronomic pleasure.

If you’re a tapas lover, Malaga is the place to be. Your trusty local guide can lead you to favoured tapas bars while giving you a little culinary 101 on Portuguese food. You’ll even learn proper tapas etiquette – things like sharing and using your fingers to try everything in sight. Some foods might include thin slices of jamón, fresh sardines, prawns, fluffy bread dishes, and of course, drinks! The local brew includes Victoria and San Miguel, not to mention the sherry wine and muscatel dessert wine.

But no matter where you are in Portugal, it’s worth looking out for a certain few special dishes. Olives, cheeses, chargrilled fish, seafood stews, and smoked meats are always safe bets. Portugal isn’t always the most vegetarian friendly country, so if you have any dietary restrictions, be sure to inform your Portugal food tour guide in advance.
